Power generation by enterprises of JSC Inter RAO — Electric Power Plants in the reporting period amounted to 54.1 billion kWh, having decreased by 21.7% compared to 2019. The change in the indicator is due to a decrease in electricity consumption in the UES of Russia, associated with the outside air temperature exceeding the long-term averages in the first quarter, a decline in business activity against the background of restrictions imposed to halt COVID-19 spread in the second quarter; and decommissioning of inefficient equipment of the Kashirskaya SDPP.

The installed capacity utilization factor of JSC Inter RAO — Electric Power Plants decreased to 38.0%.

The installed power plant capacity of JSC Inter RAO – Electric Power Plants decreased by 3.8% in the first nine months of 2020 compared with the same period of 2019 and amounted to 21.7 GW (in 2019 – 22.6 GW). This indicator was influenced by several factors:

  • decommissioning of inefficient equipment of three power units at the Kashirskaya SDPP totaling 900 MW on January 1, 2020, as well as decommissioning of power unit 7 with a capacity of 80 MW on May 1, 2020;
  • decommissioning of hydroelectric unit No. 2 of the Iriklinskaya HPP with the capacity of 7.5 MW on May 1, 2020;
  • increased installed capacity of Pregolskaya TPP (+7.8 MW), Mayakovskaya TPP (+0.3 MW) due to recertification.
  • commissioning of power units No. 1 and No. 2 at Primorskaya TPP (+130 MW) on August 1, 2020 and September 1, 2020, respectively.

As a part of the maintenance routine in 9M of 2020, the Inter RAO – Electric Power Plants and JSC Nizhnevartovskaya SDPP completed 40 repairs of power units (total power generation capacity of 14 064 MW), 31 repairs of turbo generators (total power generation capacity of 3 019 MW), and 22 repairs of boiler units (total steam generating capacity of 4 978 t/h).

Heat distribution by power plants of JSC Inter RAO – Electric Power Plants decreased by 3.4% in January-September 2020 in comparison with the corresponding period of the previous year and amounted to 2 859.3 thousand Gcal. The reduction in the heat output is due to the temperature factor, as well as due to the termination of heat supply by Kashirskaya SDPP since the second half of 2020.
